Stellar (XLM) has been moving downwards since May but briefly reversed its trajectory and rebounded on June 22.

XLM has created a bullish pattern and is now aiming for the closest resistance levels.

Long-term XLM support levels

XLM had been moving downwards since May 10, after it reached a high of $0.80. The downward move continued until a low of $0.195 was reached on June 22. 

The low was made at the 0.786 Fib retracement support level at $0.192. This is also a strong horizontal support area. The subsequent bounce confirmed this

However, despite the increase, technical indicators in the weekly time-frame are still bearish. The RSI is below 50, the Stochastic oscillator has made a bearish cross, and the MACD is nearly negative.

Breakout and double bottom

The daily chart is more bullish than the weekly outlook.

XLM broke out from a descending resistance line after making the June 22 low. Afterward, it returned near the same level on July 20, creating a double bottom pattern. 

Besides being a bullish pattern, the double bottom was combined with bullish divergences in the MACD, RSI, and Stochastic oscillator.

The closest resistance areas are found at $0.427 and $0.498. These are the 0.382 and 0.5 Fib retracement resistance levels.

If the movement is indeed a flat A-B-C corrective structure, XLM would be expected to reach a top near the $0.292 level. This would give waves A:C a 1:1 ratio.

The next most likely level for the top of the C wave would be $0.35. This would g giving waves A:C a 1:1.61 ratio. Neither of these targets would reach any of the resistance levels previously outlined. This casts some doubt on the possibility that this is an A-B-C flat structure.
